An anti-salon for experimental film and video? Yes, the VIDEOAKTION, organised by attaque(e)r le visible, wants to provide such a place in Berlin. Twice a year, it gives the opportunity to informally and non-competitively present new experiments with moving images and to put them up for discussion. The focus is on coming together, exchange, and, of course, on the question of the current condition of the experiment today and the possibilities of cinematic or media interventions in the visible. Analogue, digital, AI, Ciné-performance, Ciné-poem, Expanded Cinema performances: we are curious about all formats.

The upcoming VIDEOAKTION will take place from 30 September to 2 October at the Raum für drastische Maßnahmen.
